Ruxton Farm is in a peaceful location on the biggest loop of the River Wye. It is an ideal base for fishing, walking or canoeing and all facilities are within easy reach. There are good pubs and excellent restaurants close by. The farm is set in 14 acres and dates back to the Iron Age, where there was a fortified farmhouse guarding the access across the first of the ancient fords, complete with an internal well for security. A complete wooden framed structure was added in the 17th century, including the original staircase and hound gate, using timbers from one of the earlier bridges. A Georgian façade was added at a later date. The Mill (UKC1795) is a converted cider mill and granary with exposed beams and original stonework, whilst The Byre (UKC1796) is a converted 17th-century sandstone/timber stables and granary.
There are lots of attractions in the area to suit all ages including Goodrich Castle at Ross-on-Wye, Wye Valley Butterfly Zoo and Hedge Puzzle at Symonds Yat, Go Ape at Lydney, and Hereford, with its spectacular cathedral and Mappa Mundi. There are plenty of cycling opportunities along the Cider Cycle Route, the Ledbury route, or the 19-mile Pembridge cycle route. Take a guided tour and sample the Three Choirs Vineyard at Newent, or wander around Hampton Court Castle and Gardens. However you choose to spend your holiday you’re sure to find plenty to do in this area of Herefordshire. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile. The Mill (UKC1795) and The Byre (UKC1796) can be booked together to accommodate up to 10 guests.

    We had a lovely stay in this characterful cottage. We loved the view we got from having the living area upstairs and the kids enjoyed the large garden area outside. The owners were very nice and offered to pick us up some milk the first night to save us going to Ross-on-Wye for the supermarket there, and were very kind when we inadvertently damaged a towel. The Wye river was very close - behind trees at the very end of the fields from the window and there was a very nice 5 mile circular walk from the cottage around the beautiful Wye Valley countryside. The cottage was comfortable on the whole apart from a couple of features inherent in staying in a converted stone barn - i.e. it was really quite cold the first night because the otherwise efficient heating need time to heat the stone walls (fine the other nights) and we were joined by a good few minibeasts (insects) entering, it seemed, through the walls - although my 9 year old was delighted at the opportunity to catch and examine the woodlice! The location was quite rural and the Wye Valley is unspoiled by tourism, so this holiday was really characteristed about being outdoors, close to nature, which suited us. If you are with children, we would highly recommend canoeing down the wye in rafted canoes (i.e. two canoes tied together side-by-side) from Symmonds Yat and a visiting the Hopewell Colliery and RSPB Nagshead enclosure in the Forest of Dean.

    The mill has a lovely spacious lounge ,which is on the first floor ,so you get great views across the country side. It is run by a very friendly and helpful family. There was good fishing near by too.The family enjoyed our stay.

    We would like to return to this cottage, however as we said to the owners, we're getting on a bit and there are so many other parts of the country to see. There are some fabulous gardens and historic houses nearby, and as luck would have it we were there during h.Art week. Both we and our friends who visited during the middle weekend had a great time. And you can't go wrong with a friendly pussy cat visiting, can you? :-)

    We had a great break at The Mill. We loved the large open plan living area upstairs and the spacious garden. The owners were really helpful and friendly. First impressions downstairs were that the cottage was a little dark and dated because of the dark carpets but the space grew on us and we loved the French doors out to the garden. The cottage is located close to lots of lovely towns and villages with good pubs and shopping.
